Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. (“Navios Holdings” or “the Company”) (NYSE: NM), a global seaborne shipping and logistics company, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2020.

Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am pleased with the results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2020. For the full year of 2020, Navios Holdings reported revenue of $416.7 million and adjusted EBITDA of $153.4 million. For the fourth quarter, Navios Holdings reported revenue of $102.4 million and adjusted EBITDA of $37.6 million.”

Angeliki Frangou continued, “Fiscal stimulus and other policy measures have propelled global economic recovery into 2021. The IMF expects global GDP to grow by 6.0% in 2021, the highest GDP growth in the past 50 years. Mass inoculation programs are underway, facilitating a return to normalcy. Consequently, we are optimistic about demand for drybulk vessels in 2021 and are positioned to capture market upside with 51.7% of our available days exposed to the spot market.”

HIGHLIGHTS – RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Navios Partners’ Merger

On March 31, 2021, Navios Maritime Containers L.P. (“Navios Containers”) and Navios Maritime Partners L.P. (“Navios Partners”) completed their previously announced merger (the “Navios Partners’ Merger”). Under the terms of the Navios Partners’ Merger, Navios Partners acquired all of the publicly held common units of Navios Containers through the issuance of approximately 8,232,789 newly issued common units of Navios Partners at an exchange ratio of 0.39 units of Navios Partners for each Navios Containers common unit. As of March 31, 2021, Navios Holdings had 12.6% ownership interest in Navios Partners.

Vessel Sales

In March 2021, the Company agreed to sell to an unrelated third party the Navios Serenity, a 2011 built Handysize vessel of 34,690 dwt, for a net sale price of $10.4 million. The vessel is expected to be delivered to the buyers in the second quarter of 2021.

In March 2021, the Company completed the sale to a related party of the Navios Centaurus, a 2012 built Panamax vessel of 81,472 dwt, and the Navios Avior, a 2012 built Panamax vessel of 81,355 dwt, for a sale price of $39.3 million, including working capital adjustments.

In February 2021, the Company completed the sale to an unrelated third party of the Navios Astra, a 2006-built Ultra-Handymax vessel of 53,468 dwt, for a net sale price of $6.4 million.

Debt Reduction

During the first quarter of 2021, the Company repaid $36.2 million of outstanding bank facilities.

Bond Maturities

Our 7.375% First Priority Ship Mortgage Notes mature in January 2022 (the “2022 Notes”). Our 11.25% Senior Secured Notes mature in August 2022 (the “2022 Senior Secured Notes”). Under the terms of the 2022 Senior Secured Notes, Navios Holdings has an obligation to make a springing maturity offer in September 2021 to repurchase those notes at par unless certain conditions relating to the refinancing of our 2022 Notes are met. In October 2020, Navios Holdings entered into a supplemental indenture (the “Sixth Supplemental Indenture”) which, among other things, eliminates Navios Holdings' obligation to make a springing maturity offer subject to the occurrence of a Qualified IPO (as defined in the Sixth Supplemental Indenture) of Navios South American Logistics Inc. (“Navios Logistics”). There can be no assurance a Qualified IPO will occur prior to the springing maturity date, or at all.

Although Navios Holdings is currently attempting to address these upcoming maturities and create additional liquidity to fund working capital requirements through the sale of assets and refinancing plans, there can be no assurance it will be successful in such attempts or that any such attempts will be consummated on terms satisfactory to us, or at all.

Fleet Statistics

Navios Holdings controls a fleet of 45 vessels (including one vessel agreed to be sold) totaling 5.0 million dwt, of which 29 are owned (including five bareboat-in vessels) and 16 are chartered-in under long-term charters (collectively, the "Core Fleet"). The fleet consists of 16 Capesize, 23 Panamax, four Ultra-Handymax and two Handysize vessels, with an average age of 8.2 years.

Navios Holdings has currently chartered-out 81.6% of available days of 2021. Of 2021 available days, 48.3% are chartered-out on fixed rate and 33.3% are chartered-out on index.

The average contracted daily charter-in rate for the long-term charter-in vessels (excluding our Kleimar controlled fleet, which is mainly used for servicing contracts of affreightment) for 2021 is $15,560 per day. The above figures do not include the fleet of Navios Logistics.

Exhibit II provides certain details of the Core Fleet of Navios Holdings. It does not include the fleet of Navios Logistics.

Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders and Adjusted Basic Earnings/(Loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders per share are non-U.S. GAAP financial measures and should not be used in isolation or as substitution for Navios Holdings’ results calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

See Exhibit I under the heading, “Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” for a discussion of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders and Adjusted Basic Earnings/(Loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders per share of Navios Holdings (including Navios Logistics), and EBITDA of Navios Logistics (on a stand-alone basis) and a reconciliation of such measures to the most comparable measures calculated under U.S. GAAP.

As of November 30, 2018, Navios Holdings obtained control over Navios Maritime Containers L.P. (“Navios Containers”) and consequently consolidated Navios Containers beginning on that date. Following the sale of Navios Containers general partnership interest on August 30, 2019, Navios Holdings deconsolidated Navios Containers from that date onwards. The results of operations of Navios Containers for the periods from January 1, 2019 to August 30, 2019 and from November 30, 2018 to December 31, 2018 consolidated under Navios Holdings have been reported as discontinued operations.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Basic Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders per share for the three month period ended December 31, 2020 exclude (i) $60.5 million in impairment losses relating to drybulk vessels; and (ii) $13.4 million in other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”) loss related to our investment in an affiliate company.

(2)

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Basic Earnings attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders per share for the three month period ended December 31, 2019 exclude $130.6 million in impairment losses relating to drybulk vessels.

Revenue from the Dry Bulk Vessel Operations for the three month period ended December 31, 2020 decreased by $10.2 million, or 14.4%, to $60.8 million, as compared to $71.1 million for the same period during 2019. The decrease in dry bulk revenue was mainly attributable to the decline in the time charter and freight market during the periods compared. The TCE per day decreased by 11.1% to $13,248 per day in the three month period ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $14,894 per day in the same period of 2019.

Revenue from the Logistics Business was $41.5 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2020 as compared to $47.8 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease was mainly attributable to a $4.2 million decrease in revenue from the barge business mainly due to the expiration of certain legacy time charter contracts, partially offset by higher contracts of affreightment (“CoA”)/voyage revenues of convoys previously under time charter contracts. During the three month period ended December 31, 2020, CoA/voyage revenues were adversely affected by a prolonged period of unusually warm weather and a drought in southern Brazil, Paraguay and northern Argentina that resulted in water levels in the Paraná River dropping to their lowest levels in decades, which hampered shipping volumes and navigation. Revenue from the port terminal business decreased by $4.2 million mainly due to lower volumes transshipped in the grain port terminal due to (a) reduced Uruguayan exports affected by lower Uruguay soybean production and (b) reduced transshipment of grains mainly from Paraguay and Bolivia due to the difficult navigation caused by the low water levels described above. The overall decrease was partially offset by (i) a $1.8 million increase in sales of products mainly due to an increase in the liquid port terminal’s volumes of products sold mainly due to Navios Logistics’ ability to offer competitive prices compared to the market and (ii) a $0.3 million increase in revenue from the cabotage business, mainly due to an increase in revenues from spot voyages performed, partially offset by lower time charter rates due to market conditions.

Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders was $94.4 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $111.2 million for the same period in 2019. Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders was affected by items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Loss attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders for the three month period ended December 31, 2020 was $20.5 million, as compared to $19.4 million Adjusted Net Income attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders for the same period in 2019. This decrease in Adjusted Net Income was mainly due to (i) a $37.2 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA as discussed in the paragraph below; (ii) $4.6 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net; and (iii) a $1.0 million increase in income tax expense. This overall decrease of $42.8 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $2.4 million decrease in depreciation and amortization; and (ii) a $0.4 million decrease in stock-based compensation expense.

Net Loss of Navios Logistics, on a standalone basis, was $9.7 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2020 as compared to $2.8 million of Net Income for the same period in 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the three month period ended December 31, 2020 decreased by $37.2 million to $37.6 million, as compared to $74.7 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to (i) a $16.5 million decrease in revenue; (ii) a $13.7 million gain on bond extinguishment recorded in the three month period ended December 31, 2019; (iii) a $6.3 million decrease in equity in net earnings from affiliated companies; (iv) a $5.7 million decrease in other income; (v) a $1.0 million increase in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items); and (vi) a $0.1 million increase in general and administrative expenses (excluding stock-based compensation expenses). This overall decrease of $43.3 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $4.5 million decrease in net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest; and (ii) a $1.7 million decrease in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses.

EBITDA of Navios Logistics, on a standalone basis, was $13.1 million for the three month period ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $19.8 million for the same period in 2019.

Revenue from the Dry Bulk Vessel Operations for the year ended December 31, 2020 decreased by $53.4 million, or 21.0%, to $200.8 million, as compared to $254.2 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease in dry bulk revenue was mainly attributable to the decline in the time charter and freight market during the periods compared, and a decrease in available days by 7.5%. The TCE per day decreased by 15.8% to $10,543 per day in the year ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $12,519 per day in the same period in 2019.

Revenue from the Logistics Business was $215.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 as compared to $228.3 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease of $12.4 million was mainly attributable to an $11.5 million decrease in the barge business, mainly due to the expiration of certain legacy time charter contracts, partially offset by higher CoA/voyage revenues of convoys previously under time charter contracts. During the year ended December 31, 2020, CoA/voyage revenues were adversely affected by a prolonged period of unusually warm weather and a drought in southern Brazil, Paraguay and northern Argentina that resulted in water levels in the Paraná River dropping to their lowest levels in decades, which hampered shipping volumes and navigation. Revenues from the port terminal business decreased by $7.3 million mainly due to lower volumes transshipped from the grain terminal, due to (a) reduced Uruguayan exports affected by lower Uruguay soybean production and (b) reduced transshipment of grains mainly from Paraguay and Bolivia due to the difficult navigation caused by the low water levels described above. Revenues from the cabotage business decreased by $1.4 million mainly due to lower time charter rates due to market conditions, partially offset by an increase of 41.4% in revenues from spot voyages performed. The overall decrease was partially mitigated by a $7.9 million increase in sales of products, mainly attributable to an increase in Navios Logistics liquid port terminal’s volumes of products sold mainly due to their ability to offer competitive prices compared to the market.

Net Loss of Navios Holdings was $193.0 million for year ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $192.1 million for the same period in 2019. Net Loss was affected by items described in the table above. Excluding these items, Adjusted Net Loss of Navios Holdings for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $67.5 million, as compared to $53.9 million Adjusted Net Income attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders for the same period in 2019. This decrease in Adjusted Net Income was mainly due to (i) a $120.5 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA as discussed in the paragraph below; (ii) a $13.5 million increase in interest expense and finance cost, net; and (iii) a $0.6 million increase in income tax expense. This overall decrease of $134.6 million in Adjusted Net Income was partially mitigated by a (i) a $10.7 million decrease in depreciation and amortization; (ii) a $1.6 million decrease in stock-based compensation expense; and (iii) a $0.8 million decrease in amortization for deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items.

Net Income of Navios Logistics, on a standalone basis, was $12.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $32.1 million for the same period in 2019. Adjusted Net Income of Navios Logistics, on a standalone basis, was $16.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $32.1 million for the same period in 2019.

Net Loss of Navios Containers, on a standalone basis, was $4.1 million for the period from January 1, 2019 to August 30, 2019 (deconsolidation effective date).

Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings for the year ended December 31, 2020 decreased by $120.5 million to $153.4 million, as compared to $273.9 million for the same period in 2019. The $120.5 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to (i) a $65.7 million decrease in revenue; (ii) a $36.2 million decrease in bond and debt extinguishment gains, net; (iii) a $30.2 million decrease in other income, net; (iv) a $9.8 million gain on sale of business recorded in the year ended December 31, 2019; and (v) a $4.1 million increase in direct vessel expenses (excluding the amortization of deferred drydock, special survey costs and other capitalized items). This overall decrease of $146.0 million was partially mitigated by (i) a $10.7 million increase in equity in net earnings from affiliate companies; (ii) a $10.6 million decrease in time charter, voyage and logistics business expenses; (iii) a $3.3 million decrease in net income attributable to the non-controlling interest; and (iv) a $0.9 million decrease in general and administrative expenses (excluding stock-based compensation expenses).

EBITDA of Navios Logistics, on a standalone basis, was $86.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, as compared to $103.9 million for the same period in 2019.

(1)

Available days are the total number of days a vessel is controlled by a company less the aggregate number of days that the vessel is off-hire due to major repairs or repairs under guarantee, vessel upgrades, drydocking or special surveys and ballast days relating to voyages. The shipping industry uses available days to measure the number of days in a period during which vessels should be capable of generating revenues.

(2)

Operating days are the number of available days in a period less the aggregate number of days that the vessels are off-hire due to any reason, including unforeseen circumstances.

(3)

Fleet utilization is the percentage of time that Navios Holdings’ vessels were available for generating revenue, and is determined by dividing the number of operating days during a relevant period by the number of available days during that period.

(4)

Equivalent Vessels are defined as the available days of the fleet divided by the number of the calendar days in the period.

(5)

TCE rates are defined as voyage and time charter revenues less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of available days during the period. The TCE rate is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to present the actual daily earnings generated by vessels on various types of contracts for the number of available days of the fleet.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders and Adjusted Basic Earnings/(Loss) per share are “non-U.S. GAAP financial measures” and should not be used in isolation or considered substitutes for net income/(loss), cash flow from operating activities and other operations or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

EBITDA represents net income/(loss) attributable to Navios Holdings' common stockholders before interest and finance costs, before depreciation and amortization, before income taxes and before stock-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA, excluding certain items as described under “Earnings Highlights”. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as liquidity measures and reconcile EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities, the most comparable U.S. GAAP liquidity measure. EBITDA is calculated as follows: net cash provided by operating activities adding back, when applicable and as the case may be, the effect of (i) net increase/(decrease) in operating assets; (ii) net (increase)/decrease in operating liabilities; (iii) net interest cost; (iv) deferred financing costs and gains/(losses) on bond and debt extinguishment, net; (v) allowance for credit losses; (vi) earnings/(losses) in affiliate companies, net of dividends received; (vii) payments for drydock and special survey costs; (viii) noncontrolling interest; (ix) gain/ (loss) on sale of assets/ subsidiaries/businesses, loss on loss of control and bargain gain; (x) unrealized (loss)/gain on derivatives; (xi) loss on sale and reclassification to earnings of available-for-sale securities; and (xii) impairment losses. Navios Holdings believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are a basis upon which liquidity can be assessed and represents useful information to investors regarding Navios Holdings’ ability to service and/or incur indebtedness, pay capital expenditures and meet working capital requirements. Navios Holdings also believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used (i) by prospective and current lessors as well as potential lenders to evaluate potential transactions; (ii) to evaluate and price potential acquisition candidates; and (iii) by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.

While EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used as measures of operating results and the ability to meet debt service requirements, the definitions of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA used here may not be comparable to those used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and therefore, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the analysis of Navios Holdings’ results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are: (i) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; (ii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the amounts necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt and other financing arrangements; and (iii) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such capital expenditures. Because of these limitations, among others, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a principal indicator of Navios Holdings’ performance.

Navios Logistics EBITDA is used to measure its operating performance.

We present Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing our operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Our presentation of Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders adjusts net income/(loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders for the items described above under “Earnings Highlights”. The definition of Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) used here may not be comparable to that used by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation.

Adjusted Basic Earnings/(Loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders per share is defined as Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) attributable to Navios Holdings’ common stockholders divided by the weighted average number of shares for each of the periods presented.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA of Navios Holdings (including Navios Logistics and Navios Containers through deconsolidation) and EBITDA of Navios Logistics and Navios Containers on a stand-alone basis:
